Fukushima Daiichi detail (photo: digitalglobe)

I can see a future FoxNews or FoxBusiness “pundit” now…”What does Japan know about affects of the atom anyway?”

Just a day before the 3rd anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant accident, national broadcaster NHK released the results of a survey about nuclear power in Japan. The results show that 80% of the respondents are in favor of scrapping some or all of the existing nuclear reactors in the country.

But then again, why should 80% of the public get what they want, Tokyo Electric & Power says it’s universally awesome, like some other nearby guy. Why should a minority of 4/5ths get any say in the matter, they are just people!
